The (in)RL opener....

For any of you that haven't been following me on Twitter (@MarinaWrites), you wouldn't know how special today is for me.

I follow a community of bloggers including Holley Gerth (Heart to Heart with Holley), Bonnie Gray (The Faith Barista), etc who are all a part of a community called (in)courage, and today they launched a webinar as a part of a 2 day event called (in)RL (for in Real Life).

Since THEY have never done this before, I really didn't know what to expect! I don't know if THEY knew what to expect!! But day one was AMAZING.

I LOVED getting to hear these bloggers, and others, who fill a certain niche in the blog scene, sharing about life, and the need for community, and the desire for REAL friendships. Oh, sometimes they talk about their kids, or the issues of the day that consume them, but MOSTLY they share not so much about the events of their days, but how God is so faithful to bring us through them. He IS so faithful.

Tomorrow is a longer time event, and we'll meet around the world - some in groups, some in homes, some in churches, and many alone. I think that our goal is to draw closer to each other despite the internet; and no matter how many women are participating, I know it will be good.

I'm praying for all the tech support in each location, and for the hearts of every women to feel the presence of God. I'm so looking forward to it all!!

More after it's over...

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
